You change only the name of your business

A partnership or corporation declares bankruptcy

A corporation chooses to be taxed as an S corporation

You elected on Form 8832 Entity Classification Election, to change the way the entity is taxed

You change the business location or add locations

You elect to be taxed as an S corporation

We were referred to Lin Kahmer of Superior Bookkeeping Services by a good client who has utilized Lin’s services for years. I couldn’t be more pleased with our switch as Lin is not only knowledgeable, objective & talented, but very, very prompt in all she does. Excellent communicator, as well. We would recommend her services to anyone without hesitation.
